I should have added that unless one sees this image up close, one doesn't see the saliva and regurgitated food!! Ann.

Thank you to everybody who has taken time to look at the detailed view of this. I had never seen anything like this regurgitating feeding so close up! The gannet family is very special in its bonding.
